I am back !!


Hi everyone I have been away so long I have almost forgtten what to do here !
Its January 19th and every where is covered with snow ,it started yesterday lunch time and hardly stopped until nightful ,we had a funeral to go to a neighbour in our culdiesack (spelling?) he was 91 he had had a good life but will still miss him as he really loved his garden and had a wonderful show of roses in his front garden ,that were his pride and joy .
So at the moment all the gardens that i can see from my window all look the same ,covered in snow .
I haven’t been out as its very slippy ,I have osteoporis and a month ago just before christmas broke my left wrist quite badly ,I had had a lovely day up until then ,had been 10pin bowling in the morning then to the pantomine with my daughter and grandaughters ,when i got home Pete my husband had cleaned the carpet in the sitting room and although it felt dry it couldn’t have been I put on my slippers that had a rubber soles and went from the carpet into the hall which has a hard floor and slipped and broke my wrist ! it wasn’t a case of I wonder if I have broken it, as it was such an odd shape so it was off to the hospital sharpish ,when i got there they were all very kind to me , Had to be put out to have it pulled back into the right place then told to go home and come back next day for an operation to have a plate put in by the top surgeon there ,so theres my story I have a pink and blue plaster cast on at the moment and am getting used to sleeping with it above my head on the pillow .
One Doctor at the hospital told my husband that I had broken 7bones and it was like a jig saw puzzel !!!
I certainly shouldn’t grumble as there is so many people alot worse off than me .
Wishing every opne here a very happy Healthy New Year
Best wishes Jeansusan

A 90 year old friend after being persuaded by her family to get a walking stick, fell over the stick (!) and broke her wrist. It's taking its time to heal and, as she said, you really miss a hand "when it isn't there"!

Seriously, Jeansusan, mind how you go!

Welcome back JS. I have only recently come back on after about a year off. Sorry about your wrist, I broke mine indoors, fell over a low cupboard door, and that's when they found out I had early symptoms of Osteo. I didn't have to have a plate in, but I was still working as a florist and had to make a wedding bouquet with my wrist in plaster. So painful, so I do sympathise, do be careful.

Thank you Pam, Seaburngirl ,and Eirls for your kind comments ,Pam are you on medication for the osteopois ? I am something called strontium ranelate ...

Oh poor you! And you've brought back memories of attempting to shower with one arm sellotaped into a plastic bag; trying to pull tights on; silently cursing at other commuters who had tunnel vision for their own agendas while moving dangerously close to my obviously plastered arm! Hope things go well for you. :o)
